37: The Politics of Persistence – Emma Veiga-Malta

The Politics of Everything

At first glance, the story of Emma Veiga-Malta may appear pretty ordinary. A mother who has launched a successful creative business from her artistic studio, while raising a family and supporting her husband’s career is not so special these days. Emma is the founder of Bespoke Backdrops, a design company changing the world of video backdrops one brushstroke at a time. However, to gloss over her story is to miss the pearls of wisdom for us all. Emma has lived a real-life tale of riches to rags (and, as she says, hopefully, riches again) that begins in the UK. That all changed overnight when the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) hit her husband’s business to a point of no return. What happens next is the best part! Emma is here today to recount a very personal story of what The Politics of Persistence has meant to her. In this podcast you will hear: Why entrepreneurialism, money, and creativity can be best friends. How Emma’s persistence has paid off as she went from ‘living the dream life’ in Switzerland to losing it during the GFC – to now, creating her own successful creative business from the ground up. Why she believes that ‘motherhood is the biggest excuse’, in terms of mums not pursuing their own financial independence and bigger goals. Best advice: What is your best piece of advice for anyone wanting to empower themselves in The Politics of Persistence?

60 Becoming a profitable artist - Emma Veiga-Malta

Your Next Chapter - Business & Life Beyond 40

Emma had always been drawn to making the world more beautiful. As an artist in Switzerland she taught adults how to paint and completed commissions for her own clients as she raised her children. But when her family moved to Sydney the door to her Next Chapter as flung wide open in ways she could not have imagined.  The GFC hit hard the family hard, as her husband was in the financial industry. Emma found herself needing to transform her hobby and skills into a business entity that could contribute at a higher level. Once she moved through what she described as the “middle class taboo”, the experience of admitting and accepting that “the system” of comfort she had known was no longer available, she took a deep breath, focused, and began to explore how she could generate income in a sustainable way. “I started by looking at how I could transfer my current skills into a new endeavor. I knew the key was to create something useful, something that was really needed by people. My first Next Chapter. Bespoke Chairs, was delightful and I even won a Pitch Fest in Silicon Valley with my concepts, but the reality was it wasn’t generating enough income so I went back the drawing board. I wrote out my Perfect Day as a business owner, how I really wanted to work and who with, and that helped me to identify what I did not want – which is the starting point for any new endeavor!”. And on the heels of that discovery, helped along by research and awareness in Facebook Groups, Bespoke Backdrops was born.
